"Administracinio teismo pradai" iki Lietuvos Respublikos nepriklausomybės atkūrimo
The dilemma how to make a public administration to serve the people, to manage public affairs rather than to demonstrate its ‘power, to reconcile private and public interests rather than satisfy the interests of big industries has been a long debate. Monitoring of the implementation of power is equally important to the empowerment. One such method is a judicial review. This article examines the legal literature of the Interwar period, which assessed the possibilities of establishing an administrative court, laws, and case-law of the Senior Tribunal, the legal order of administrative proceedings, the entities that could supervise the administration. Also the article explores the control of the administration in Soviet times. The study concludes that there was a significant degree of bias in the supervision of the Interwar Lithuanian administration, the administrative process was ambiguous and not separated from other branches of law. Further, in spite of the fact that the very first administrative case in court was examined in 1873, the evolution of judicial review in Lithuania began only in 1999 with the adoption of the Law on Administrative Proceedings.
